The number of 9/11 victims and First Respondents who develop autoimmune disorders appears to increase in time.  The illnesses range from rheumatoid arthritis to sclerosis under the unexplained group of illnesses. A few are connected to specific organs, while others are systemic and are responsible for body-wide assaults.

Since these illnesses are rare and difficult to identify, there are no concrete cases. The issue has steadily grown up. Numerous individuals have self-reported illnesses, but it proved to be difficult to verify them for the World Trade Center Health Registry.

Researchers still do not know what causes the illnesses in the general community to occur. However, a rising number of research studies on 9/11 victims show that developing diseases may be connected with the event caused by the dangerous dust and the trauma.

Since these illnesses are rare and difficult to identify, there are no concrete cases. The issue has steadily grown up. Numerous  individuals have self-reported illnesses, but it proved to be difficult to verify them for the World Trade Center Health Registry.
